Architecture Version 2.0 (Nov 2014)
In July 2012, the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) issued a
final rule to implement section 53005(d) of Moving Ahead for Progress
in the 21st Century Act (MAP–21), which requires ITS projects funded
through the highway trust fund to conform with the National/Regional ITS
Architecture and applicable standards.
In response, the Regional Transportation Council (RTC) adopted a
policy that requires
agencies who receive funding through RTC funding
initiatives for ITS projects develop a
statement of architecture consistency.
The policy aids the implementation of ITS projects by
coordination and review to meet the intent of the federal legislation.
To meet these requirements, stakeholders in the North Central Texas (NCT) Region developed the NCT
Regional ITS Architecture.
The purpose of this regional ITS architecture web site is to encourage use of the regional
ITS architecture and gather feedback so that the architecture is used and continues to reflect the
intelligent transportation system vision for the region. If you have questions or comments regarding
the web site or the regional ITS architecture please contact Marian Thompson at (817) 608-2336 firstname.lastname@example.org or Eric Quintana at (817) 608-2381 email@example.com.
